After going through the Overflight Fees on FAA.GOV, the following is clear and self-explanatory:
- Exact fees
- Method of Payment (online, via Pay.gov as mentioned on the page).
What's not clear to me is the following:
The FAA charges overflight fees to operators of aircraft that fly in U.S.-controlled airspace, but neither take off nor land in the United States.
- Does this mean that international flights that land at any airport within the U.S. are not liable for overflight fees, and that they're only liable to pay the other fees such as airport charges etc.?
- How is the invoice/bill delivered to the responsible party? I believe airlines/commuters have accounts that get billed, but what about private jet owners?
- What would be the circumstances if, say a private jet owner/operator departs from Canada, lands in Mexico and doesn't pay the invoice? What if such a trip is made once a month for a long period of time without paying the due fees. Does that jet "not get permission" to enter U.S. Controlled Airspace?
